Chocolate Cherry Mice

Chocolate Cherry Mice are the cutest little treats! Creamy chocolate covered cherries with an adorable mouse face that kids love to make and eat.


  • 1 bag chocolate chips milk or semi-sweet
  • 1-2 teaspoons shortening
  • 12 Maraschino cherries WITH stems (these are a little hard to find, but they are a must!)
  • 1 bag Hershey’s chocolate kisses
  • Unsalted peanuts halved
  • Red-hots or tiny cinnamon candy


  1. In the microwave or over the stove, melt the chocolate chips and shortening together. Stir until smooth.
  2. Holding a cherry by its stem, dip it into the chocolate and then press a chocolate kiss onto the cherry.
  3. Wedge peanut halves between the cherry and chocolate kiss to make the ears.
  4. Place this on wax paper until chocolate dries.
  5. Add a couple dots of white frosting for eyes, then put a little melted chocolate on a red-hot and place on the end of the kiss to make the nose.
